CM to hold a crucial meeting with TAC today evening to contain the spread of Covid

Following an increase in Covid cases in the state, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai will meet with the Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) today at about 6.30 p.m.

The CM would seek expert advice before imposing stringent measures in the state to combat the spread of COVID-19. According to reports, the CM is unlikely to declare a lockdown, but he may contemplate declaring a weekend lockdown, and a night curfew may remain in effect throughout the state even after January 7.

Dr. GB Sattur, a well-known physician from Hubballi and member of the Covid Clinical Expert Committee stated that the government is taking preventive steps and there is no harm in it; of course, it is a mild variant of the coronavirus, but we need to be prepared.

Within a month, cases will multiply exponentially, and this highly contagious Omicron will spread at twice the rate of the previous variation delta. The omicron is highly contagious, and many people, particularly those who have not got the COVID vaccine, may become infected, according to Dr. Sattur.

Dr. Sattur advised the public to strictly adhere to the COVID regulations, such as wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and washing their hands. Dr. Sattur, who will attend the key meeting with the CM this evening, will provide suggestions to the CM for curbing the spread of the coronavirus’s highly infectious variant.

Dr. Sattur stated that he would ask the CM to expedite the process of making the genome sequencing report available as soon as possible so that the administration could take appropriate action.

Sources said that CM will receive the advice from the TAC and place it in the cabinet to discuss with his colleagues and he may take a decision after the cabinet meeting which will be held on Thursday.
